Our Dojo

The Woden Valley dojo has been located in and around the Woden/Weston area for over 20 years and now is back at the old dojo where they use to train before the schools extensions which saw the club having to find other training venues. Since then, the club has grown and new clubs have developed in and around the Canberra region. Woden Valley dojo’s head Instructor Sensei Kevin Nash (6th Dan), Assistant instructor Sensei Luke Drady (3rd Dan) and their team of dedicated black belt instructors offer classes for teens, adults and families in a safe, friendly and professional manner that are fun, affordable and for everyone.

  • World class instructors. World class training.

YOUNG GRASSHOPPERS (3 – 4 years old)
Our young grasshopper programs are specifically designed for children aged 3-4 and incorporate basic karate skills with fun activities designed to improve your child’s co-ordination, strength, flexibility and confidence. The most popular part of this class with parents is the strong emphasis on stranger danger principles and effective self defence against larger opponents.

PEE-WEES (5-12 years old)
Pee-wee classes are for those children aged 5-12. Fun, effective and energetic is the best way to describe these classes. Fully qualified and screened instructors will help you to give your child a head start in life by giving them effective self-defence skills, self-confidence and respect. They will have a smile on their face the entire time while we help them set realistic goals and achieve them.

TEENS
Our clubs recognise that our teens go through big changes and at different times. We have special programs to accommodate every individual. Our Junior (12-14 years) program allows students to build their skills and confidence as they grow and eventually transfer to our Cadet (15-17 years) program, where they are tested on all aspects of the style. Effective traditional Karate classes in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for all fitness and levels.
